The Outspoken Cyclist – 03/29/2014

Astronomy be damned, winter rolls on here in the Great Northeast. White Easter, anyone? The Outspoken Cyclist rolls on, and this week we’re talkin’ nutrition, collegiate cycling, and female BMXers.

First up is Georgie Fear, and certified nutritionist who has collaborated with Matt Fitzgerald on the Racing Weight Cookbook: Lean, Light Recipes for Athletes. Her website, AskGeorgie.com, also  has great information about eating right for physical activity.

It may not get a lot of press coverage, but collegiate bike racing is out there, and Marian Univeristy in Indianapolis, Indiana has a thriving program, led by coach Dean Peterson. As Dean explains, college cycling is one place in this sport where the women are equal in importance to the men.

The second half of the show is dedicated to a conversation with BMX and mountain bike champion Leigh Donovan, who now teaches those skills to girls and women through her I Choose Bikes program.
